Georgia

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No that I know of, she can't work, and I moved her out of low income housing, to a duplex house,

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

She has divorce papers ready for me to sign, I just want to walk away and don't have anything following me, because she didn't have anything before I met her,

Unfortunately, merely being married a short time is not, in and of itself, grounds for annulment.

Annulment is only available in certain limited circumstances.

  • you and your spouse are related by blood or marriage
  • you did not have the mental capacity to enter into a marriage contract
  • you were under the age of 16 when you entered into your marriage
  • you were forced to enter into the marriage
  • you were fraudulently induced to enter into the marriage, and
  • your spouse was married to another living spouse at the time you entered into the marriage.

If you do not satisfy one of the conditions listed above, then you must file a petition for divorce to dissolve your marriage.

That said, with such a short marriage, it is unlikely that the property settlement will be much more than dividing the wedding gifts.

There will be no alimony in a 7 month marriage.

I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I do not want to see you spinning your wheels on the annulment issue.

Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
